Alan Halsall interview: Tyrone proposes to Fiz

What makes Tyrone decide to propose to Fiz?

It’s been a long time coming, if I am honest! Tyrone has proposed to Fiz before but I certainly think that everything they have been through over the last couple of years has just cemented what Tyrone wants in his life; he wants Fiz as his wife and he wants that family life. Tyrone thought he could find happiness somewhere else and he couldn’t because that happiness lies with Fiz and now he doesn’t want to hang around, he’s like, “Let’s get a ring on it and let’s go!”

Fiz and Tyrone have been on and off for decades. Are you surprised that they have never been married before?

Well they have been on and off but Fiz and Tyrone had their first kiss 21 years ago which is mind-blowing when you think about it. It has been a long time in the making, they’ve been engaged before but things have gone wrong or money has been an issue or they’ve constantly found problems in their relationship and the timing was never right. It certainly feels like the timing is right this time.

Did you always think Fiz and Tyrone were going to get married one day?

I was hopeful that they would because it’s nice that throughout all of the years, even though Fiz and Tyrone have been apart and they have been with other people, there has always been something between Tyrone and Fiz. It has gone on all these years which is not something you often see on television. I think it’s nice that finally it looks like they are set to get married and I don’t think that Tyrone can wait!

Could the engagement be a fresh start for Fiz and Tyrone?

Yes, I certainly think as a couple they are going to have a lot of chats about what a fresh start means to them because they are parents to two kids and they have a house together so it is a fresh start but with a lot of familiarity too. Tyrone knows that this is what he wants now and hopefully Fiz knows this is what she wants after the whole Phill situation. So that is the fresh start, they just ‘know’ now after all the troubles that they have had throughout the years, that their happiness lies with each other.

What does Hope and Ruby think about the engagement?

The kids are a funny one because they just see Tyrone and Fiz as ‘mum’ and ‘dad’ anyway, regardless. Hope obviously has her own issues going on so I think they are probably not that bothered but I think they see the funny side, Hope says, “Nobody else has been a flower girl for two different weddings for their mum in six months!” It doesn’t come as any surprise to the kids.

What sort of wedding do you think Tyrone would like to have with Fiz?

I think Tyrone would like to do it completely off the cuff, he just wants to get married. He wants it to be special for Fiz, of course, but the special bit for him is that they are getting married to each other and therefore he wants to do it as soon as possible. It’s not that he wants to rush it, he just wants to be married to Fiz after all these years. Tyrone’s taste in dresses and venues might not be up to Fiz’s!

Tyrone has walked Molly and Kirsty down the aisle. Will it be third time lucky for Tyrone or does trouble come in threes?

I hope it’s third time lucky for him! But regardless, the fact that they are a couple now, I hope that they can stay at least ‘a couple’ for quite some time. I would still like to tell those domestic stories but together with Fiz as a family unit.

Are you looking forward to having another Coronation Street wedding yourself?

Yes, absolutely. Tyrone has been married to Molly, Tyrone walked down the aisle with Kirsty but didn’t get married but this one feels right for Tyrone. Fiz and Tyrone were two kids who had tough upbringings and had tough family lives but they had found themselves together, craving and wanting this happy family life and I think it’s right that they finally get together and create this happy family life themselves.

If Tyrone could have anyone at his wedding, who would it be and why?

It’s an easy one for Tyrone really! It would be the people who were essentially his parents - Jack and Vera. They are two people who turned Tyrone’s life around and Fiz was a part of that as well so they are the two people that he would crave at his wedding.

What a lovely interview. Of course Ty would want Jack and Vera there, that's only natural.
I do hope that they do end up getting married after all they've been through!

Fiz helped turn Tyrone's life around really?!
The same Fiz who blames Tyrone when things go wrong recently complained about his house being too small[after trying to get Tyrone to sell it so she could buy a big house with Phil]and initially let poor Ruby take the blame for her daughter's Hope bad behaviour?!
Poor Ruby is still being neglected by her father and Fiz while Hope is the favored child who could do no wrong in Tyrone's or Fiz's eyes and if Fizand Tyrone do get married,Ruby will suffer the most.

@ Anon:
Fiz helped Tyrone when he was in a physically abusive relationship with Kirsty. That's what got them back together.
I don't disagree with the rest of your post though!
